Safari is always the focus of a holiday to Africa – and rightly so! Where else in the world can you see such a variety of ecosystems? From the rolling plains of the Serengeti, stomping ground of the Great Migration, to the thick jungle in Rwanda that is home to the mountain gorillas… nowhere in the world competes with Africa!
However, Africa has so much more to offer than just its amazing game viewing. The continent is home to stunning cities such as Cape Town, spectacular sights like Victoria Falls, and a number of picturesque beaches (check out our blog on a Cape Town or Vic Falls combination safari). Two weeks on safari is too much and you do get safari-ed out, so it only makes sense to take advantage of one of these other elements that Africa has to offer!

Whether it is a family holiday or a honeymoon, you never want to finish a safari… yet the thought of flopping on a beach is always welcomed!
